An account, told in the manner of an eye-witness, by S. P. B. Mais
Derby was the southernmost point reached by the Scots in the Rebellion of '45. Bonnie Prince Charlie entered the town on foot on December 4, taking up his residence at the Earl of Exeter's House, and a party of Highlanders took possession of Swarkestone Bridge.
